As usm does not provide the most recent package:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g flash

 The following items were found.
 Choose an number to confirm. 
 ctrl+c to quit

1) flash-player-plugin-11.2.202.481-x86_64-1sl.txz
2) flash-plugin-11.2.202.569-x86_64-1gv.txz
3) flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.569-x86_64-1alien.txz
#? 

Is there a porteus solution? Is it different for google-chrome, firefox, etc.?

Thanks.

Flash in firefox never more, stopped in version 11
I prefer pepperflash + chromium.

chromium slackware package
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/chromium/

flash player (pepperflash) latest version
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... sh-plugin/


Note:
Pepper Flash Player is maintained by Google, and is newer than Adobe Flash Player. Adobe currently still provides security fixes for Adobe Flash Player. Google provides newer features in Pepper Flash Player. Pepper Flash Player can currently only be used with Chromium (and with Chrome).

I am updating the alien repo manually now. Seems the taper address is rejecting my rsync requests.

A clever piece of code. Thank you for posting it. But the last line needs to be

Code: Select all

echo "version = "$VERSION
-edit-

This additional code works for me.

Code: Select all

echo "Latest version = "$VERSION
LIVE=`grep "flashplayer" /var/log/porteus-livedbg|tail -n1|sed 's^//^/^g'`
LIVE=${LIVE:48}
echo "Using version = "$LIVE
